Top 5 Interview Behaviors to Avoid
When you notice an interview taking a turn for the worse there are a couple of things you can do. If they look bored, insert some personal stories that are short, sweet and to the point. Rambling will only make things worse. If your answers aren’t resonating then stop the interview, redirect and restart. Being honest and open is the best way to change the interview. You may have a chance to save that interview!
